Gears of War: Judgment might be releasing sooner than you think
UK online retailer posts up a release date for Judgment
UK-based online retailer, ShopTo.net, has posted up their pre-order page for Gears of War: Judgment, along with a release date of 8 February 2013. If their guarantee on delivery is to be taken seriously, they seem pretty confident about it.
Of course, this is just another in a litany of “leaked” release dates coming from online retails, ranging from the behemoth Amazon to our own local BT Games. Sometimes these things prove correct, other times not.
Like all good sceptics, we’re filing this one under rumour until something official comes from Epic Games and/or People Can Fly.
Gears of War: Judgement is a prequel and will chronicle the events of E-Day breaking out, where the Locust first attacked Sera, and while the game will revolve around the Squad disobeying orders and the impending trial, don’t expect to spend much time in the courtroom, as the new game is described as a non-stop action romp.
The game will play out through flashbacks, assuming that we get more insight into the ‘deserting’ and war-crimes as we play through moments from the past and those said events, getting a better understanding of why the group may have neglected their duty. The backdrop will then be the testimony that the Squad has to give in their defense.
